this in the "washington post." when you take a cold hard look at the amount of resources you can raise through the top 2% of americans you will finds yourself disapointed relative to the magnitude of the revenue increases that we need. >> reporter: that means you can't just limit deductions to the rich. that won't bring enough money. what you have to do is raise the tax rates on the rich. secretary geithner who didn't pay his taxes when he was confirmed as treasury secretary, he's saying you have got to raise tax rates on the rich. he's upon board with the president to raise tax rates on the rich. if you did that you only bring in $87 billion a week. that's 10 weeks' worth of interest. that's his side of dealing with the deficit. it's not going to work. the debt keeps on going up and if it keeps on going up like this we'll be downgrade, bill. bill: the money you raise would not cover even the last 70 days, what you just explained. stuart varney with us this morning. martha: president obama will face report,for his first news conference since his reelection. it starts at 1:30 eastern i am. we understand

in washington that believes in the demonstration was the white house. general david petraeus said that he knew within 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. he said that he was trying to convey that position in his congressional testimony of september 14. he apparently didn't. but the key point is he thought that he was being consistent. somehow between then and when white house spokesman jay carney spoke, susan rice goes on television on the 16, it goes 180 degrees away from the notion of a terrorist attack towards the demonstration. in an interagency practice, let me just say this, because i'm sure most people say, what are they talking about? for theory to get advanced and end up as the conclusion, some agency has to be pushing it. i think that the congressman put it very well. there is no reason to think the justice department or homeland security or anybody has anything invested in the demonstration out of control theory. there is only one entity and that is the white house. megyn: the point i was asking chairman king about was is it incredible to you that we have these hearings on capi

chapter. >>> well, leaders in washington today calling talks on the fiscal cliff constructive, but not everyone is buying that anything is getting accomplished. >> yeah, not just -- last week td ameritrade's ceo warned the cliff hanger would keep the markets muted into the new year. it's no wonder the major average is down about 5% since the close of trade on november 6th. fred joins us now exclusively. are you hopeful, at least, that we get a deal before the end of the year? >> i don't know if we'll get a deal by the end of the year. i'm hopeful we'll get a deal, and i'm hopeful our political leaders will work through this. i think the hard part is getting it done before the lame duck session. >> can we afford in the to get a deal before the end of the year? >> you know, i don't know. you never know. i think you can always gets through it. there's many ways to get through it. i think the market is really looking for incredible plan here. it's probably a combination of spending cuts and tax increases, but it has to be one that helps in the short term but has over the long term

, a select committee in the parlance of washington, to look into the benghazi attacks, of course, and september 11th that left four americans dead including the american ambassador, ambassador stevens, there's always the house of representatives, and certainly, their questions, they still have many questions about what they do as conflicting tell about that testimony or about that appearance that susan rice gave almost five days after those attacks on september 16th when she said this was a spontaneous event that began as a result or reaction to that anti-muslim video that inflamed passions throughout the muslim world, and morphed into something much more sinister. you saw those two senators there today, senator conrad, many other senators that we spoke to yesterday, said that the problem was is that some of the information that talked about the nature of the attacks, the terrorist nature of the attacks was classified. susan rice said what she could say, what she was told to say by the intelligence community when she made that appearance. so a little air taken out of the balloon
